Thinkers Among Us
“A bookstore is one of the only piece of evidence we have that people are still thinking.” Jerry Seinfeld
Yesterday, April 28th was Independent Book Store Day. This movement was started three years ago by Authors for Indies. Authors take time away from their own projects to work in an independent bookstore, meeting and greeting customers and talking about books. You can’t really call that work. It was a pleasure to spend my time, giving back to one of the best bookstores in the world, Armchair Books. Dan Ellis the owner has supported both my writing career and the literary programming I’m crazy enough to organize including, the Whistler Writers Festival, the Authors in the School Program, the Writer in Residence Program and the Spring Reading Series.
None of these programs would exist, let alone thrive without Dan’s support. So this blog is my thank-you note to Dan and Armchair for years of unwavering support. I’m also very grateful to all the readers who buy and read books.
Yes, Jerry, there still exist thinkers among us. Thankfully!
